the uneventful death of the air

there were problems
but not really solved

      glimpses of former greatness
dulled by age    use  and    stanek
        shrill clicks     the odd glitch
sentimentality had long been missed

 a month for a year    the lightness of air
always remarked upon
   by those ruled   by broken hearts

the worst of the hurt
       is eager to learn
             how someone so young
would give up    on  the  sun

remedial health is understood
by knocking on wood
getting big    getting good
 they think they should

the uneventful death   of the air         
               when nobody stopped to  stare  
but try try tried  
                          to care

 like me

                                     Shoes (1888)
                                Vincent Van Gogh
